According to the latest unemployment report from the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, Ohio’s unemployment rate slightly dropped in November to 9.8%. 

It’s the first time Ohio’s unemployment rate hasn’t been greater than the national unemployment rate in over eight years, (Oct. 2002).

    Do you know if this factors in people who no longer get unemployment benefits? I couldn’t tell from the press release, but would love to know…

    I don’t know. I don’t think so since the measure of unemployment isn’t inherently the percentage of Ohioans on unemployment in the first place.

    Thanks, Modern. My brother is, unfortunately, among the group of unemployed no longer getting unemployment assistance, so I’m very interested in job creation in Ohio!

    Well, that will be quickly reversed once Kasich gets in office.

  • hahahahaha. delusion much?

    I would like to know how this is calculated also– I would say that the umployed who are off unemployment benefits as counted as working — making the numbers look better than perhaps they are–
    I tried to look this up — got no place —

  • look up lagging indicator and holler back. if you really think these numbers are the result of the economy responding to what Kasich is yet to do then you may be be too stupid to comment here. Seriously.

    UE numbers typically follow 2-3 quarters behind an upturn in the economy so I’d say Strickland may be more able to claim credit than Kasich.

    you’ll have plenty of time to wait and take credit on Kasich’s behalf as the general economy rebounds. not that he would have done anything to bring it about. to claim the election of a “pro-business Gov” (as opposed to what?) is the reason for this news shows that maybe you were home schooled in economics.

  • “home schooled in economics”! LMAO

    Not all homeschooling is Jesus-based…

  • I know. You’re right. And I know that many home schooled children get an amazing education.

    But the fact that many parents home school their kids so they aren’t exposed to sex ed or evolution or basic science was kind of the foundation of Eric’s humorous statement so I ran with it.

    Didn’t mean to offend.

    Oh, none taken. And nothing drives a secular homeschooler nuts like the other side of the coin.
